The Skateroom has teamed up with Steven Harrington as a part of The Skateroom’s first series dedicated to graphics and illustration – fields that have consistently inspired skate and DIY culture.

“It brings me great joy to be collaborating with The Skateroom on a set of collaborative decks! I’ve always regarded art and skateboarding as great creative outlets that can further enrich our youth, and should be fully accessible to the greater public. Thank you to the whole team at The Skateroom and its partner charities for continually making this dream possible all across the world.” (Steven Harrington)

Final kids Suli skatepark

Following The Skateroom’s business model, through our next collaboration The Skateroom w/ Jean Jullien, Jeremyville and Steven Harrington, we will donate 10% of the turnover of the sales of the editions to the NGO Make Life Skate Life for their latest project ‘Suli Skatepark’.

With the opening of the first skate park in Iraq three weeks ago, they kicked off a year-long volunteer-led skate program with the goal to make skateboarding available to everyone who wants to learn while encouraging the participation of girls and refugees.

Additionally, we will also send out 375 coloring books made by the artists to Skateistan for their ‘Skate and Create’ program in South Africa, Afghanistan, and Cambodia.

Girls skate in Suli

Suli Skatepark is an initiative inspired by a small motivated group of skaters in the city of Sulaymaniyah. The city is located in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region of Northern Iraq, surrounded by several mountain ranges and known as the cultural capital of the Kurdish region.

The skatepark will provide youth from Sulaymaniyah and across the region a free, safe and accessible outlet for socializing and physical activity. A free of charge loaner system will be established so that all youth can have access to skateboarding equipment and safety gear to use at the skatepark, regardless of economic standing.

Harrington

Cited as the leader of a contemporary Californian psychedelic-pop aesthetic, Los Angeles–based artist and designer Steven Harrington is best known for his bright, iconic style that encourages a two-way conversation between the artist and viewer. There’s a timeless quality to his playful yet contemplative work, which is inspired by California’s mystique, vastly diverse landscape, and thriving mix of cultures.

Embracing a multimedia approach, Harrington’s portfolio includes large-scale installations made of plaster and stone, handscreened prints, limited-edition books, skateboards, and sculptures. Alongside his commercial work, Harrington has exhibited artwork in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Barcelona, Tokyo, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Montreal, Melbourne, and Dallas.
